For many, swing dance is an addiction and a joyful practice. This documentary is an insider’s look into the culture of the current swing dance world and an examination of the social and personal issues that affect the lives of the film’s subjects. What is remarkable is that no matter how tough things get, these men and women find their bliss doing what they love to do. On the dance floor they virtually explode with energy—leaping, twisting, revolving. There’s no way the viewer can keep still or not feel the joy. A Magnolia Pictures release.
Q&As with George Gee and Barbara Allison Jones at both screenings, joined by Judy Pritchett on 4/8 and Evita Arce on 4/10!
